Well, hello there! I love absolutely everything that has to do with photography. A documentary on a famous photographer? Better add it to my queue. A giant, glossy coffee table book loaded with stunning pictures? Oh, my heart! Better yet if it also includes traveling to new places all around the world. Intermingling my travel and photography passions is something I always welcome.
Whether I'm snapping pictures, editing photographs, attending industry mixers and conferences, I consider my work to be one of the most fulfilling things (along with my family, of course)!
HOW I GOT STARTED: The birth of my first child sparked a desire to capture her every milestone, which led me to investing in a professional camera and taking some local photography classes. All of a sudden I was in love with this new creative outlet and I wanted to do more with it. I started taking portraits of family and friends, then was asked to shoot a couple weddings. And in 2016, I decided to officially start my photography business focusing mainly on weddings.
THE KEY TO STANDING OUT: The key for me has been to not compare myself to other photographers or following trends. Instead, I come up with innovative ways of giving my clients the best, most unique experience that exceeds their expectations. A service that I always include is retouching every portrait in Photoshop while still maintaining a one-month delivery deadline on weddings (one week for engagement sessions).
WHAT EXITES ME ABOUT WHAT I DO: What truly excites me is working with all types of wonderful couples and having the ability to tell their stories through my lens. Making my clients feel as if they can be their true selves around me is something I pride myself in.
THE NUMBER ONE THING I WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT LISETTE GATLIFF PHOTOGRAPHY: My work is much more than simply photographing a couple’s special day. Clients tell me that viewing their images is like re-living the day all over again. My goal is always to capture every detail and candid moment while also conveying the elegance of the occasion with a fine-art aesthetic.
